About Me

I'm a mom, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a scout leader. I am actually an education major currently working on my practicum in a 2nd grade classroom. I also home school my two children. I'm also a cub scout leader, a girl scout leader, and at church I'm the children's music leader. ;) I tend to stay a little busy. My state requires homeschoolers to keep a portfolio. I am going to use this blog as my portfolio.

What am I?

Apples - Day 1

Craft: I cut out trees and the kids painted the apples on there w/ their thumbs.

Math: I forgot to take a pic while these were on the flannel board. I cut out a bunch of numbers... okay, actually, my hubby did the cutting. And then he cut out a bunch of "apples". The kids had to put the correct number of apples by the numbers.

Science: We had 4 different types of apples (red delicious, granny smith, roma, and golden delicious -- I think, I may be wrong -- something like that). First, we talked about the differences in the different apples; color, size... etc. After that we guessed how many seeds we'd find in each and if it would be the same in each apple. Then we cut them open and counted the seeds. Then we tasted each one and talked about the differences in their taste/texture/juiciness... etc.

After cutting all of those apples, I bet you can't guess what we had for snack time. :) W/ a bit of peanut butter they were super yummy!!
